the narrow spaces //DISTANCE FROM THE BODY
the collection’s starting point was an analysis of the emperor and his wife’s way of dressing in the Tang Dynasty in China.
the bigger proportions, the longer the sleeves, the more unpractical,
the more power you had,
no need to move.
the collections draws on the idea of creating impractical garments,
with a modern approach.
the emperor didn’t have to move a finger when fully dressed. not moving a finger became affiliated with not using ones phone. there is never something physically interfering with our constant presence online.
what is impractical?
the collection values sleeves as an obstacle for our usages of digital technology nowadays. it acts as a reminder to slow down and be present. don’t move.
be an emperor, where there is no need to move a finger.
